Time to start over again.

Wednesday, July 03, 2013

So I'm down to 2 1/2 months till I leave for basic! I'm also done with vacationing... Which is fine but it really means I need to really get back into an exercise program and eating properly.

I have not been eating the way I should for a while now. I blame it on moving in with my parents and being around my DBF soo much. It may be an excuse but it is the truth. We eat out far too much and because I can't cook and store food the way I would like to that and I don't have a consistent routine what so ever. Sometimes I'm staying at one house and the next night ill be at my parents. Soo I'm thinking about going back to the healthier frozen dinners to at least get my portions and calories back in check.

It'll be much better than leaving things up to chance all the time.

Time to start weekly weigh ins and measurements, also I think I'm going to start tracking calories... I know I never really did it before but I truly need to lose the weight this time and have a deadline. I need to be 163 or less by September 17th. If my weigh in today was accurate that means I have to lose 14 lbs in 2 1/2 months...

I guess we will see what happens, all I know is that atm I'm starving because I actually ate proper portions today and roughly the right calories. I know it'll go away and get easier if I stick to it.

    I have so much trouble when I'm off my routine... and my husband LOVES to eat out... UGH. Drives me nuts. 3-4 times a week, we're eating out because it's what he wants.

    I DEFINITELY think you can do 14 lbs in 2.5 months. My trainer would tell you to "eat clean", which is what I've been doing to get off of this plateau. Fresh fruits, veggies, egg whites, small amounts of nuts, seeds, yogurt and tofu. Keep in mind that I'm a vegetarian, so this may not be desirable for you :) It's been tremendously helpful for me over the last week so I'm going to continue.

    I have 100 % faith in your ability to do this!

    Yes, it's definitely tough to stick to a routine when you're moving around and not in your own space anymore, I know! I rely on those portion controlled frozen meals a lot. They are okay, but I'd recommend adding some veggies on the side to keep you feeling fuller.

    Losing 14 pounds in two and half months might be a bit tricky, but I think that if you do manage to develop some sort of eating plan, track your calories, and get some regular exercise in, you can do it!

    Hope you had a great vacation! :)
